Baxter Bell, MD, has been actively deepening his understanding of the power of yoga since making the stress-reducing move from a career as a busy family doctor to that of a yoga teacher and medical acupuncturist.
A Certified Yoga Therapist, Baxter is co-author of the book Yoga for Healthy Aging. His teaching has been influenced by many gifted teachers, including Rodney Yee, Patricia Walden, Erich Schiffmann, Richard Rosen, Mary Paffard, TKV Desikachar, and Donald Moyer. A featured presenter of therapeutic yoga classes on the website Yoga U Online as well as in Yoga Journal’s DVD, Yoga for Stress, Baxter has also written articles for Yoga Journal and the International Journal of Yoga Therapy.
Baxter’s teaching involves the integration of therapeutic applications of yoga with his understanding of Western medicine. He serves on the board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and on the Advisory Council for Piedmont Yoga Community. Until the recent SARS Covid-2 pandemic shutdown, he taught a weekly yoga class for people living with cerebral palsy at Ability Now Bay Area (ANBA) in Oakland, CA.
His teaching emphasizes a healing, nurturing style of Hatha yoga, balancing the desire for action with the need to quiet the mind, emphasizing curiosity and meditation in one’s practice. Baxter’s students know him for teaching with gentle humor, kindness and his close attention to safety in the practice of yoga. www.baxterbell.com
